Father’s Day is…not my favorite. I was having a discussion this afternoon with a friend of mine — all those cards with four panels of sappy poetry and enough glitter for Liberace? Who even buys those cards anyway?!?!?! I was having a bad morning on many levels. I skipped most of the Father’s Day posts…and I’m sorry I skipped this one, it’s well-worth reading and unequivocally beautiiful. Blessings — VKS
May you be celebrated for you,
for your life of love and dedication.
May you be celebrated for love
poured out in pitches thrown and boo-boos kissed.
May you be celebrated for strength
displayed by controlled power, harnessed force.
May you be celebrated for tenderness
demonstrated in cradling sleepless babies and wiping feverish foreheads.
May you be celebrated for longevity and generativity
surrounded by those you have walked life with.
May you be blessed with examples of masculinity
May you be celebrated as a follower
For the men in my life who I celebrate this weekend…
